The disaster of that ludicrous film “Marley and Me”, filled to the brim with puke-inducing sentimentality and claptrap, led me to despair at the past and future of proper Canine films; not least among the failings of “Marley and Me” is the very absence of canine representation. Surely our friends are deserving of a more accurate and intelligent portrayal?

Fortunately, the recent 22nd Singapore International Film Festival brought two gems to these shores. Both Dean Spanley and Wendy & Lucy engage and explore in ways which get to the very heart of our relationship with our best friends.
